curious. it's right after the u.s. elections are over, president obama made a deal, gave israel iron dome and then all of a sudden, there's no incursion into gaza. right after our elections are done, all of a sudden on november 8 a two week lull in violence is broken by israel when they shoot and kill a 12-year-old boy. you might say it's an accident. every time a civilian is killed, israel says it's an accident. there's an awful lot of accidents. then there was a ceasefire and in this case, israel broke the ceasefire by killing jubarek. why did israel start the aggression november 8 and break the ceasefire? >> there have been three ceasefires in the last month all violated by the terror groups. egypt mediated quietly to bring quiet to the region. three times in the last month and there have been 300 rockets fired at israel within the last month from inside gaza. every time we try to reach a ceasefire with hamas, it was violated from their side. we don't want the rocket fire. we'd be crazy to want rocket fire on tel aviv tonight. we have 5 million people under rocket fire from tel aviv to
years ago was isolated from the world community. president obama defended the trip as some human rights advocates say it's coming too soon. >> this is not an endorsement of the bermese government, this is an acknowledgement that there is a process underway inside that country. >> reporter: on his last trip with the outgoing secretary of state hillary clinton, president obama expects to meet with leaders again. the two reflected on it during their visit to the monastery. after myanmar, it's off to cambodia. >>> meanwhile back here at home, much of the focus here in washington remains on controversy on what happened in gaza. >> reporter: on "meet the press," firm denials on benghazi from a top democrat. >> was there a cover-up? do you believe that the president or anybody serving the president deliberately misled the true nature of this attack for political reasons? >> no. >> reporter: former cia director david petraeus left no doubt in his testimony on friday. he said all along that the attack was a terror attack. >> it was terror. that's the point. >> reporter: republicans continued the
to showcase the so-called pivot to asia, all three countries mr. obama was visiting have human rights difficulties. in a news conference with the prime minister day before, admitted the country's democracy is work in progress. just six years from a coup. >> he would likely not be visiting cambodia where the human right abuses have gotten worse in recent years but the east asia summit there. meanwhile, israeli-palestinian fighting in the ongoing arab string led to daily phone conversations with israeli prime minister netanyahu, and egyptian president morsi, prompted an appeal for talks and restraint. >> as egyptians, tunisias, others have more of a voice in their government, it becomes more important for all the players including the united states to speak directly to those populations. and to deliver a message that peace is prefer to believe war. >> experts say one of the questions likely to dominate informal conversations at the summit in cambodia is where will the u.s. economy will plunge over the so-called fiscal cliff. mr. obama says he is confident it won't and that the region wi

obama told benjamin netanyahu that he understands israel's right to self-defense in light of countless rocket attacks on israeli civilians being launched from gaza. the president urged that prime minister netanyahu make every effort to avoid civilian casualties. do we think this administration has were leverage in making sure that happens? >> i mean, the israelis really feel that they have gone too far. they simply could not hold back from defending themselves because of the hundreds of attacks. trying to stop that, trying to tell israel not to defend itself is really impossible, but that said, the danger of this, of course escalation and all-out war is really very high. that's why this administration is trying to, you know, urge both sides to stop. it's obviously not being very successful. >> you know, tony blair has put a lot of political capital in this trying to come up with a peace agreement for the middle east. he spoke about this recently, what he sees is happening. i want to play a little bit for you. >> the single thing that's most important straight away is to try and calm th
. thankz to president obama's re-election some republicans think the apocalypse is right around the corner, so they are reorganizing. it's gotten so bad residents in 40 states have started petitions to peacefully cede from the union. the petitions have been filed with the obama administration's we the people program. if a petition receives 25,000 signatures within 30 days, it will be reviewed by the white house and a response will be issued. so far texas, florida, georgia, and louisiana have all met the 25,000 mark. of course, the big winner is texas. over 84,000 people in texas have signed up to break way from the united states. as of tonight the white house has not issued a response to any of t of these petitions. rick perry has flirted with the idea of an independent texas in the past, but this time he's changed his tune. his office released a statement saying governor perry believes in the greatness of our union and nothing should be done to change it. but he also shares the frustrations many americans have with our federal government. really? believe it or not, it's good news for demo

that republican congressman call president obama a liar. is he right? >> no. and that is absolutely outrageous, carol. and i think that is what is leading to this kind of protracted and ugly fight, which is exactly what the american people did not want coming out of this election. they wanted their leaders to work together and on something as important as benghazi, i think that every party leader needs to understand that they should dial it down a notch and really feg out what happened here. we're talking about the deaths of four americans. we're talking about an ten intelligence community that is under fire. that should be important to both parties. and ei agree with ron, we need o figure out what the cia knew, what general petraeus knew. it also goes to susan rice, ambassador rice and what she said, which came directly from the talking points that the intelligence community put together for her. so we all need to step back and really work together to figure out what happened here. >> the strange thing, if general petraeus is to blame when he was cia director, he's already gone. you can't exa
